I think I need to do weightlifting too

I am a gymnast who tumbles for fun.

  • I am not training for the Olympics or trying to compete.

I just want to see what I can do and get a good work out. I started out just tumbling two days a week. Then I bumped it up to around four. Now I am tumbling seven days a week. I have noticed my tricks have improved, so has my flexibility. Unfortunately I am sustaining a lot of injuries and I am sore all the time. The Olympics were this year and I got to see a lot of promo videos of the tumblers. I was surprised that the videos showed the gymnasts working out, but doing non tumbling workouts. I watched Simone Biles climb a rope, lift weights and do crunches. Now that I think about it, it does make sense to attack other muscles in the body to build strength. Simone can’t do floor tumbling everyday without being super worn out and sore. I think I am going to back my tulbing off for five days and do weight training the other two days. I want to see if that helps me improve. Unfortunately I have never done any weight training before. I don’t even own free weights. I did find a group fitness class offered at the health and fitness center near me. They only do weightlifting in that class. I asked around and it sounds like it’s more than lifting free weights too. People talked about medicine balls, poles and kettlebells. I am excited to try it out.

Training for a marathon

I decided that I am going to do a marathon this year.

I am 27 years old, no kids and I already am in pretty good shape.

I run just about everyday but only 4-5 miles worth. A marathon is 26, so I need to get moving. I downloaded a running app that tells me what I need to do per day. I don’t run every single day because I need my muscles to recover, but I do at least four times a week and one run is a big one. I will do around three days of four miles runs and then on the weekend be bumped up to a seven mile. It is a good way to build endurance and stamina. I have been loosely towing with the idea of hiring a personal trainer at my local gym. Every now and then I go to the gym to get a smoother surface for my run. I can practice hills and have the option of quitting if it is too much. I like being in the air conditioning and not having to bring a water pack during a run. They offer fitness experts that can help you with your goals. I think a personal trainer could get me in shape for the marathon. I am sure there are things I am not doing correctly. I bet my stride, breathing and arm positioning isn’t perfect. I haven’t tackled what I am eating at all. I would think a personal trainer would know the proper way to get prepared for such a huge undertaking.

My biceps need work too

The worst is doing punching drills with gloves on

I do a gymnastic based workout seven days a week. I change what gymnastic element I target but it is always tumbling. I do either walkovers, back handsprings, tucks or cartwheels. What I love about gymnastics is that just about every muscle is getting targeted. My abs get a ton of work when I do tucks. Back Handsprings are good for my butt and legs. Walkovers are good for my triceps. When I string tricks together I get a good cardio workout. The only downside is that I have noticed my biceps never get touched. Apparently the tricks I do just don’t get that muscle at all. I have tried to do weight lifting on the side so that I don’t totally neglect that muscle. I have found that I hate lifting weights. I tried to make myself do 10 minutes a day of weightlifting work but I always ensure I don’t have time to do it. I am now trying a fitness class once a week. I think it is good for my gymnastic muscles to rest and try something else. The fitness class is strictly weightlifting. It isn’t just lifting free weights though. The fitness instructor has me using medicine balls, weighted poles and doing push ups. I can always trick myself that I am not doing any bicep work. The worst is doing punching drills with gloves on. That just kills my arms by the end of a session. I am hopeful that I start seeing a difference and maybe notice my tumbling improve along with my biceps.

Muscle confusion

I consider myself to be a very athletic person.

I work out every single day.

I change what kind of workout I do. I rotate between cardio, weight training, balance and coordination drills. I don’t just lace up my sneakers and run everyday. The key is muscle confusion. Anything you do, your body attempts to get accustomed to. I don’t want to work out and feel I am hardly benefitting from it. That is why I am part of a wide variety of fitness groups. I do a group fitness class one day a week where the certified fitness expert leads us in a cardio based workout. I never know what to expect. I have been put on a stationary bike, given a jump rope or told to run on the treadmill before. The fitness expert does prefer to do whole group activities where everyone is jumping, squatting and lunging together. I love it since I never do that kind of stuff on my own. I stick to lifting weights, using my chin up bar or riding my bike through town if I am on my own. My other fitness class is a kickboxing oriented work out. I either am wearing heavy boxing gloves doing hand strikes or doing different kicks across the gym. I get sore in completely different areas the next day. It feels good to know that all areas of my body are targeted once a week. It is exciting that I can still get sore and my heart rate spikes because I am good at differentiating what I do.

HVAC van was in my sister’s driveway

My sister is absolutely bad about spoiling her pet! I keep making fun of her for it, though she doesn’t seem to care. She loves this pet more than life itself, and it is absolutely like the pet is just her kid or something. I keep telling her that she has absolutely hairy genes because her kid is super hairy, even though she doesn’t think that’s funny. Anyway, she spoils the pet like crazy and just when I thought that it couldn’t get any worse with her, it does. I just found out the other day when I went over to visit her that she is having a special home built for the pet out in the backyard. It’s not just any house, either. It’s a tiny little mansion! The day that I was there, an HVAC truck showed up and when I asked what they were doing there, my sister explained that they were there to install the heating, air conditioning, and ventilation system in the new pet home out back. I nearly choked on my coffee when I heard this. I mean, the pet stays in the home most of the time anyway and so I don’t even understand why it needs a house. She says that he needs his own space sometimes, not only does he need his own space, but evidently he needs his own little heating and cooling system! She’s even getting a little air cleaner installed in the pethouse! It’s absolutely the craziest thing, occasionally I worry about my sister because I think that she might be losing it!

My sister has an obsession with her dog

My brother is really bad about spoiling his pet.

  • I keep making fun of him for it even though he doesn’t seem to care, he loves this pet more than life itself, and it is really like the pet is just like his kid or something.

I keep telling him that he has really hairy genes because his son is super hairy, though he doesn’t think that that’s very funny. Anyway, he spoils the pet like crazy and just when I think that it couldn’t get any worse with him, it does. I just found out the other afternoon when I went over to visit him that he is having a special home built for the pet out in the backyard. It’s not just any house, either. It’s like a tiny little mansion. The afternoon that I was there, an HVAC truck showed up and when I asked what they were doing there, my brother explained that they were there to install the heating, air conditioning, as well as ventilation plan in the new pet home out back. I nearly choked on my coffee when I heard this. I mean, the pet stays in the home most of the time anyway and so I don’t even understand why it needs a house. He says that he needs his own space sometimes, not only does he need his own space, but apparently he needs his own little heating and cooling system. She’s even getting a little air purification plan installed in the pet house. It’s really the craziest thing. Sometimes I worry about my brother because I think that he might be losing it!

My sister is truly bad about spoiling her pet.

I keep making fun of her for it, although she doesn’t seem to care.

She enjoys this pet more than life itself, and to truly care about the pet is just like her kid or something.

My husband wants to fill the heating and cooling void

My hubby has decided that he wants to beginning up a new commercial HVAC business next year, he’s been genuinely working for one of the local heating and cooling companies here in neighborhood for quite a few years now, they only do commercial HVAC work, they have a pretty sizable business, so they are looking for someone to do commercial heating and air conditioning work for them, when they weren’t able to make it work with both commercial and residential heating and A/C business at the same time, they decided to focus on the residential work instead of trying to expand after all.

That’s when my hubby got the bright idea that he was going to leave the heating and cooling company that he was genuinely working for and begin his own commercial heating and air conditioning company instead.

He said that he just knew that it was time for him to venture out and begin his own business. When he realized that there was such a need for the community to have a commercial HVAC company there to take care of the diners, shops and theaters, he thought that he could undoubtedly fill that void. He has decided that next year, he’s going to begin this company and get all of the commercial heating and air conditioning customers in the neighborhood to come to him for all of their heating and cooling needs! I guess he’s going to do good whenever he finally gets the business going. He’s already a genuinely good HVAC business and I guess that he’s going to be an even better owner and supervisor of his own business..
